“We loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We really enjoyed staying in Andrea and Martina's apartment. This is a real Italian experience. You have olive trees and grape vines out your window as they make there own wine and olive oil. They are a beautiful family with 2 lovely boys. The apartment itself was extremely clean and everything you need to self cater. It has one bedroom that can sleep 4 and a nice size bathroom with a washing machine which is a real bonus. The kitchen has a cooktop, oven and full size fridge. Wifi is available from 8om every night. We would highly recommend this apartment for anyone wanting to enjoy Tuscany.

“Perfect holiday in Chianti”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

As many of the reviewers here on this website would say, it is a perfect base for day trips in the region, including Florence, Siena, S. Gimignano, Volterra, Pistoia and, of course, for relaxation and exploring Chianti its beautiful self. Surely, we did all of this and were very satisfied with the service, location, conditions, quality and value for money.

We stayed at Andrea's, in his second, smaller apartment (there are two for rent in the same house) for a week in early August 2011. Needless to say, we liked it very much. The apartment has a modern, well-equipped and clean kitchen with a normal-size fridge, a normal-size, clean bathroom, a spacious enough bedroom, a washing machine in an own private backyard.

The apartment has only doors, no windows, but you wouldn't need that much sun in your rooms on a hot summer day anyway. It helps keep the apartment cool during the day and night without air conditioning which it doesn't have. So we didn't miss windows.

Besides, the beautiful Tuscany is there waiting for you to step out and enjoy the lovely scenery just outside the door. The place is also suitable for runners and joggers, although the Tuscany landscape may appear difficult for those who are used to flat environments. I did my morning runs some kms all the way up (to the left off the gate) and same way down, which was rather enjoyable.

The apartment didn’t have its own internet connection, but Andrea kindly shared his mobile 3G modem with us every evening. The TV in the apartment has hundreds of satellite channels from all over the world. Shopping-wise, it takes some ten-minute drive to San Casciano that has a good-size Coop supermarket, at times a bit too busy. There is a smaller one closer to the house, in the village of Mercatale.

Mosquitoes could be a problem despite the protection net on both doors. Mosquitoes get into the apartment anyway, so they can ruin your night sleep if you don’t get protected additionally. A plug-in mosquito killer in the bedroom can do the job.

“Posto incantevole”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014 for a stay in August 2014
Google Translation

La struttura è incastonata nelle colline del chianti e la sua semplicità esalta la bellezza del posto. Le camere sono super pulite ben attrezzate per passarvi periodi anche lunghi, straordinaria la disponibilità e cortesia dei proprietari. Ottimo il rapporto qualità prezzo.
Comodo per raggiungere le principali mete turistiche Toscane, consiglio di privilegiare le strade interne per godere il fantastico panorama delle colline del chianti.
Con la mia famiglia ho trascorso una settimana fantastica, assolutamente da consigliare a chi ama e sa apprezzare le cose belle.
